Mr. Alfredo Quarto

Profile:

Alfredo Quarto, Executive Director and Co-founder, is a veteran campaigner with over 28 years of experience in organizing and writing on the environment and human rights issues.  Formerly an aerospace engineer, his experiences range over many countries and several environmental organizations, with a long-term focus on forestry, indigenous cultures, and human rights.  Prior to MAP, he was the executive director of the Ancient Forest Chautauqua, a multi-media traveling forum with events in 30 West Coast cities on behalf of old-growth forests and indigenous dwellers.  Alfredo has published numerous popular articles, book chapters, and conference papers on mangrove forest ecology, community-managed sustainable development, and shrimp aquaculture.  He lives in Port Angeles, Washington and is conversant in Spanish Partnering with mangrove forest communities, grassroots NGOs, researchers and local governments to conserve and restore mangrove forests and related coastal ecosystems, while promoting community-based, sustainable management of coastal resources.

Leadership Statement:

Mangrove Action Project (MAP)  confronted its most difficult, challenging and productive year in 2010. During this time of “Great Recession” the enthusiasm and commitment of our staff and volunteers contributed to us accomplishing notable achievements. 2010 marked the publication of the 10th annual children's art competition calendar, as well as the 250th issue of MAP News e-newsletter. While amongst our many campaigns we achieved a break though on Bimini Island in the Bahamas to halt the expansion of resort development.   The MAP team has worked hard all year to expand on our global work of advocacy, networking, education, mangrove restoration and community-based resource management. Most notably our Ecological Mangrove Restoration program raced forward with the development of a series of training workshops and follow-up mangrove restoration projects in both Asia and Central America.   MAP has continued to strive forward during 2010. Utilising our global network and offices to achieve our mission:   “Partnering to conserve and restore mangrove ecosystems and related coastal habitats while promoting community-based management”.    We saw a notable increase in global membership to 3,700 in 2011. I would like to thank all of our supporters, especially as we enter a new year, and an era of funding uncertainty. Our members are of most importance, not only via their financial support, but also in promoting our work. In addition, our work and successes would not be possible without the support of a number of key foundations, corporations and organizations. I wish to acknowledge the generous support of Cottonwood Foundation, Firedoll Foundation, Global GreenGrant Fund, Munsun Foundation Patagonia Foundation, Singing Fields, Mcknight Foundation, New England BioLabs Foundation, and two anonymous foundations and major donors during 2010-11.    This support, together with our community based partnership work recognizes the crosscutting importance of our truly grassroots, bottom-up approach to mangrove conservation and restoration issues.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

November 2014)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program: Building a Global Mangrove Network from the Mangrove Roots Upwards (GuideStar Exchange,

November 2014)

Budget:
$50,000
Category:
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Witnessing firsthand the rapid devastation of the world's mangrove forest wetlands and their associated coastal ecosystems, the founders of the Mangrove Action Project (MAP) decided in 1992 that it was time to form a global network to save the mangroves. MAP has grown steadily during the last 19 years to become a respected member of the global environmental movement. MAP's international network has grown to include over 450 NGOs and 300 scientists and academics from 60 nations. In recent years, MAP has transformed from a network- and advocacy-focused organization into one still involved in advocacy, but with programs and activities on the ground, supported through local offices in Thailand and Indonesia, as well as a developing office in Brazil. MAP's pro-active five-pronged approach to long-term mangrove conservation involves: education, advocacy, collaboration, conservation and restoration, and sustainable community-based development.

Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Most important to the community is establishing a fully operational Coastal Community Resource Center (CCRC), which will become the heart of the village, pumping information and enthusiasm to people and programs, allowing for future local community development activities and capacity building.  Needed renovations must be completed during this dry season, and so, we need to secure $8,000 worth of supplies in order to finish construction before the rains begin again in May. The two houses that the Lions Foundation of Thailand so generously granted for the CCRC need basic retrofitting, as they currently are not rainproof during the monsoons - threatening to ruin environmental displays, they require sun screening protection, and also must be physically connected in order to function properly.

Program: Ecological Mangrove Restoration (EMR) Projects (GuideStar Exchange,

November 2014)

Budget:
$110,000
Category:
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

MAP's Ecological Mangrove Restoration (EMR) Method is an economical and efficient cyclical approach to mangrove restoration which follows basic natural processes. This well-considered model directly engages local community participation, and has proven extremely successful. As part of post-tsunami recovery, MAP has actively rehabilitated 580 hectares of mangrove forests in Riau and North Sumatera, Indonesia.  March 2011 marks the beginning of a year long EMR project in Myanmar that will require much time, supplies, and funding.  There are so many areas in need of EMR education and EMR implementation, the room for help in this focus area is immense. 1.     We plan to expand the EMR training and active mangrove restoration to other regions, such as Bangladesh (1), India (3), and Honduras (1). EMR works when most other approaches to restoration are dismal failures. We cannot afford to continue doing this wrong.

Budget:
$60,000
Category:
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Educating the future decision-makers in each nation containing mangroves is vital if we hope to conserve these unique ecosystems. MAP’s curriculum, “Marvellous Mangroves” was first adapted twelve years, from hands-on science-based programs and activities.  We have received overwhelming expressions of interest in our new curriculum from throughout the tropical world. MAP will be implementing the introduction of the curriculum through a "train-the-trainer" process where MAP staff will train key teachers in each country. MAP's interactive 300 page Mangrove Curriculum is now in China, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala, Cayman Islands and Colombia. It is necessary to translate and adapt to the flora and fauna for each country where the curriculum is introduced. We want to expand the reach of this important educational tool to reach more children in more nations.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

MAP’s international coalition network brings together an international scientific and activist response to the destruction of mangroves.  MAP’s strategically located Asia offices successfully provide important training workshops in Southeast and South Asia, utilizing our innovative, In the Hands of the Fishers (IHOF), program to organize training workshops in Ecological Mangrove Restoration techniques and sustainable community development options. Workshops were held in Cambodia, Thailand and El Salvador The Question Your Shrimp consumer awareness campaign is a multi-faceted outreach project that uses a variety of strategies to help the general public learn about the true impacts of industrial shrimp farming on mangrove ecosystems throughout the world and provides ways in which the public can take actions to support local fisheries while taking a stand against industrial shrimp farming. MAP’s Mangrove Curriculum for primary school children was further developed as part of the official school science curriculum in Brazil and China.  This was a major step forward for training teachers in the most effective use of MAPs education program to help ensure that future generations grow up with a deeper appreciation for the value of their mangroves. MAP’s Annual Children’s Mangrove Art Calendar Contest bridges art, education, and cross-cultural efforts to highlight the importance of mangroves in shoreline communities.  The program, as well as the resultant calendar, is designed to reach both school-aged children and the greater consuming public in the U.S. and in many other countries. MAP’s network now spans over 60 nations, 500 NGOs and 350 scientists, as well as thousands of concerned individuals. MAP not only oversees mangrove conservation work, but also helps disseminate latest news and views about mangroves in relation to climate change, fisheries decline, and ecological and human rights issues around the world.
